From their colourful hue to their peppermint taste, candy canes can be a festive staple. Whether crushed or melted, adding them to food and drinks will give your recipes a touch of sparkle.
This creamy cheesecake rich in chocolate and peppermint candy is the perfect showstopper. You will need to make an Oreo base, then a chocolate cheesecake filling using milk chocolate, sugar and cream cheese, before sprinkling some crushed candy canes on top.
Leaving the house and want to take a sweet treat with you? Incorporate some crushed candy canes into a soft dough and mix well before cooking. Alternatively, chop the canes into slightly bigger pieces and press them down onto the dough just before putting the cookies in the oven.
This a great cold drink to have as a dessert or snack. Simply crush the candy canes into small pieces and place them in the blender. Then, add in the ice cream and milk for a smooth taste and, voila!
Need to warm up from the cold? Just stir some melted chocolate with some candy canes for a tinge of peppermint flavour.
With or without alcohol, this is a fab party drink! All you need to do is blend some peppermint ice cream, whipped cream, red food colouring, crushed candy canes and vodka (optional).
